The aim of this study was to evaluate the adjunctive benefit offers by the administration of a chlorhexidine based local drug deliver (Chlo-SITE) into periodontal socket after a full mouth disinfection session. The study design was a randomized, crossover, clinical trial conducted on 60 non-smokers subjects with chronic periodontitis. Each volunteer was subjected to a one-stage full mouth disinfection session and, immediately after that, test product (Chlo-SITE) was inserted in 1 pocket in 2 quadrant. The 1° and 4° quadrant were used for the study with the application of antiseptic (Test); the 2° and 3° as a control. Periodontal probe (PD), bleeding on probing (BOP) and plaque index (PI) was collected at baseline (T0), after 7 days (T1), after 4 weeks (T2). The results of this study suggest that the application of xanthan-based chlorhexidine gel (Xan-CHX) offers a great benefit in improving of the indices in chronic periodontitis.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the adjunctive benefit offers by the administration of a chlorhexidine based local drug deliver (Chlo-SITE) into periodontal socket after a full mouth disinfection session. The study design was a randomized, crossover, clinical trial conducted on 60 non-smokers subjects with chronic periodontitis. Each volunteer was subjected to a one-stage full mouth disinfection session and, immediately after that, test product (Chlo-SITE) was inserted in 1 pocket in 2 quadrant. The 1° and 4° quadrant were used for the study with the application of antiseptic (Test); the 2° and 3° as a control. Periodontal probe (PD), bleeding on probing (BOP) and plaque index (PI) was collected at baseline (T0), after 7 days (T1), after 4 weeks (T2). The results of this study suggest that the application of xanthan-based chlorhexidine gel (Xan-CHX) offers a great benefit in improving of the indices in chronic periodontitis.
